Bp. of St Asaph from 1704. In 1672 he became Vicar of St Peter's, Cornhill, where he had a daily service and Eucharist every Sunday. When T. Ken was deprived in 1691, Beveridge was offered (but declined) the vacated see of Bath and Wells. His Private Thoughts upon Religion (1709) place him among the spiritual writers of the century.
